80-year-old man was seen in the office on 9-27-11. He had cataract surgery done in the right eye 5-years-ago. He noticed just last night his vision began to decline in the right eye. You saw a retinal detachment and suggested he come here for an evaluation. He has had a heart stent. He takes aspirin. VISUAL ACUITY: OD 3/200, OS 20/40. IOP: OD 12, OS 18. SLIT-LAMP EXAMINATION: The right eye has a posterior chamber, intraocular lens in good position, left eye 3+ nuclear sclerosis. EXTENDED OPHTHALMOSCOPY: OD: Vertical C/D ratio is 0.1. There is a superotemporal retinal detachment extending from 8:00 around to 1:00. The macula is detached. It is a bullous retinal detachment and there are also 3 tiny retinal holes superotemporally. OS: Vertical C/D ratio is 0.1. There is a posterior vitreous separation with scleral depression, no retinal tears. IMPRESSION: 1. MACULA-OFF RETINAL DETACHMENT IN THE RIGHT EYE. 2. RETINAL HOLES IN THE RIGHT EYE. 3. VITREOUS SEPARATION IN BOTH EYES. DISCUSSION: I explained to the patient that with pneumatic retinopexy there is about an 80 to 90% chance of reattaching the retina in that eye. I treated him with cryo therapy on the retinal breaks, injected the eye with 0.3 cc C3F8 bubble. I asked him to position upright during the day tilted a little bit sleeping on his left side at night and also he will need to do face down positioning. 10-15 minutes every hour or 2 for the next 2 days to avoid a macular fold. He will return for a check tomorrow, sooner should he notice a problem and see you regularly. Thank you for allowing me to participate in his care. FU - VA was 20/40 3 months after procedure. The included photos are from 2 weeks after the procedure.
